Why I loved Windows 8 Modern UI

“Am I the only one around here who gives a shit about … ?”

Boy, did we have fun at Microsofts expense the past two or three years, didn’t we? DIDN’T WE. Haha. They had their metro interface, replacing the “start”-button. Ow wait, we can’t call it the “Metro interface” anymore, as it is now the Microsoft design language or Modern UI. My bad.

But for years every single blogger in Technorati has been typing and spitting on the proposal for a new Windows start menu, ie. tiles. It was ugly, bad, chaotic, stressful and clumsy. Whats more, people wouldn’t be able to find the start button anymore, so people would not be able to find their programs anymore.

Now I’m a great proponent of making computers harder to use. That way less and less people will be on the Internet, and we can finally have some peace of mind. But even so, the Metro interface was actually easier to use then the original start menu. Every keyboard in the world — except for those used by Mac Heathens, mind you – has a windows button. Use it. It actually opens the start menu. *angelic choirs*.

So, do I love Modern UI, because I hate macs and found the start button? No. Ow, well, because it further complicates computer use then? NO, it does the opposite actually.
No. The real reason I love the tile interface so much, is …

Wow, has it really been 2 years since I posted something here?
That must be a records, even for me.

Ow wait, I’ve posted that writing practice on Windows 8 just now, but that doesn’t count, because that article has been laying as a draft in my pages-box for about a year now. Maybe two. I just finished it and then posted it. Because Microsoft needs to know, that somebody loves them still.

So this would be where I summarize what I’ve done the past two years with my life, and what my plans are for the upcoming period. Not sure if it will be another two years. Let’s be honest, blogging might go out of style very soon. But before that happens, I’d like to share a thing or two.

First of, I have a son. *applause*.
Yes!
If you followed this, you now know I have two kids. I’m raising both of them to be complete assholes and change the world for the better. Or see the world burn and laugh hysterically. Maybe both.
Being a dad has taught me lots of things. For instance it has taught me not to update this fucking blog so often. Once every two years or so is fine.

To you I say: Tits or GTFO!
